Frankfurt Motor Show top luxury models

September 18, 2011
Lamborghini Sesto

Elemento Dubbed the world’s most expensive supercar (coming in at around €1.7 million), the Sesto Elemento is blisteringly fast, capable of reaching 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.5 seconds. Sadly, only 20 of the models will be produced, and even worse, you’ll never see them on the road — when they’re delivered in 2013 they’ll be destined for track use only.

Porsche 911 Carrera

The Carrera returns, sleeker, lighter and more efficient than ever. The new model rides low on a 3.8-liter Boxer engine, delivering 14 percent better fuel consumption of just 8.2l/100km — it’s also the first Porsche to make it under the 200g/km mark in terms of emissions.

Lamborghini Gallardo

LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale This beast of a car leaves nothing to be desired, boasting performance on par with the world’s fastest — 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds and through to 200 km/h in 10.4 seconds. Just 150 will be built.

Bentley GTC Continental

The latest incarnation of the footballer’s favorite boasts a more powerful 6.0-liter, twin-turbocharged W12 engine as well as a new QuickShift transmission enabling faster gear changes than ever before. Customer deliveries are expected to begin later this year.

Jaguar C-X16

Another concept, but an interesting one nonetheless, offering two seats in an E-type fashion, a top speed of 300 km/h and a gasoline/electric hybrid engine.

Ferrari 458 Spider

Joining the 458 Italia, the new 458 Spider is also a world first when it comes to design — the supercar is equipped with a fully retractable hard top, a world first for a sports car with this layout.

Maserati GranCabrio Fendi 

A collaboration between two Italian greats, the Maserati GranCabrio Fendi is a special edition of the 4.7-liter V8 GranCabrio designed with legendary Italian designer Silvia Venturini Fendi.

Maserati Kubang

This is a concept for now, but it’s among the most anticipated luxury models at the Frankfurt show — a Maserati SUV, expected to hit production sometime in the next few years, based on the Porsche Cayenne platform but boasting a 4.7-liter V8 engine.

Eterniti Hemera

It’s not scheduled to launch until next year, but you’ll need to save to afford this luxury SUV, the first from the factory of new British marque Eterniti. It’s built on a VW SUV platform but that’s where the similarities end — the model holds a 4.8-liter V8 engine, which can manage 290 km/h with a 0-100km/h acceleration time of under 4.5 seconds.
